Donald Hall Foundation

You may remember this story from the DNJ back in February. On 1/21/09, Donald Hall was a victim of a hit-and-run driver and left on the side of the road for six hours before someone found him. Donald rode his bike to work everyday in Lavergne, TN just outside of Nashville. Donald is paralyzed from the accident and was recently moved to the University of Michigan Hospital to be close to his family.


After reading this story, Sarah Lovett and I decided we needed to do something. We contacted Keith Webb of the Jeff Roth Cycling Foundation, and he helped us work with Don Hall’s family to set up a foundation for Don. As a result of this "accident", Don has lost his 7 year old son, his home, and his independence. He is currently at the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor working very hard to regain some independence. His son is living with Don’s mother, Jean Gonzales.

You can follow Don’s progress here http://www.carepages.com/carepages/CupCake

If we all just gave $10, and you pass it on to your friends for $10, soon we can raise enough money to help buy Donald a wheelchair. Donations can be made to Donald’s family to help support his on-going medical expenses. All donations received for the Donald Hall Family Fund will be disbursed to the family in full.

Donations made through the Foundation are tax-deductible. Please include your return address and email so we can acknowledge your donation.
